Representative Text

1 Jesus, I come to Thee, longing for rest;
Fold Thou Thy weary child safe to Thy breast.

Rocked on a stormy sea, oh, be not far from me,
Lord, let me cling to Thee, only to Thee.

2 Jesus, I come to Thee, hear Thou my cry;
Save, or I perish, Lord, save or I die. [Refrain]

3 Now let the rolling waves bend to Thy will,
Say to the troubled deep, peace, peace be still. [Refrain]

4 Swiftly the parting clouds fade from my sight;
Yonder Thy bow appears, lovely and bright. [Refrain]
